Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster says he feels sorry for Petr Cech following the veteran’s shaky start to the season.Cardiff scored their opening two goals of the season in the 3-2 defeat to Arsenal, but it was Cech’s inability to be comfortable with the ball at his feet which has Arsenal fans worried.

Cech gave the ball away in treacherous situations and Arsenal were fortunate that the Bluebirds were wasteful in front of goal.

And Watford shot-stopper Foster has sympathy with the former Chelsea No. 1.

“You’re not just expected to make saves nowadays,” he told BBC Radio 5 live (via Star).”You’ve got to be that Ederson or Alisson type of goalie where you’re super comfortable with the ball at your feet.“For a lot of goalies, it’s not an easy thing to do you know.

“You’re probably going to be talking about the Arsenal game at the weekend, and I watched a bit of it.

“Petr Cech has been probably one of the best goalkeepers the Premier League has ever seen but it’s not his game.
